ABR
Last modified: Wednesday, February 26, 2003 

Short for available bit rate, or Class C quality of service, an ATM bandwidth-allocation service that adjusts the amount of bandwidth based on the amount of traffic in the network. ABR service provides a guaranteed minimum bandwidth capacity but allows data to be bursted at higher capacities when the network is free.

Compare with CBR, UBR and VBR.
